after newtown, lapierre called for armed police in every school and a national mental health registry. that's right. register people who have mental health problems but no registry for gun buyers and owners. let's bring in mike who is in washington. >> reporter: the feeling is the nra may have helped its cause and the nra may have helped its fundraising cause. nra may have fired up its base. but the nra did nothing to help its cause here on capitol hill. quite the opposite. what we've heard from lawmakers today in the wake of that wasn't even a press conference he didn't take questions. in the wake of that statement that wayne lapierre made was that the impetus now -- they almost have fresh momentum. we heard diane feinstein one of the principal authors of gun legislation that has new life now. she says it doesn't matter how long it takes it may take a year, two years, three years, the conventional wisdom is after the horror from newtown dies down somewhat, after the outrage and anger has subside, congress doesn't get down to case until february after the inauguration, after the state

, good afternoon, everyone. the entire congress is united and condemning the violence in newtown, and on the need to enforce our laws. as we continue to learn the facts, congress will examine whether there is an appropriate and constitutional response that would better protect our citizens. with regard to the year end tax issue, i would remind everyone that in the summer of 2010 senator schumer said, quote, first i don't know a single one of my colleagues who wouldn't prefer to do tax breaks for people up to $1 million. it's my understanding that that is essentially the proposal that the house of representatives is likely to send over to us later in the week. >> well, i think the other thing that's getting lost in the whole debate about the fiscal cliff is where are the savings, where are the spending cuts. the president has talked about a balanced plan, but as they've tried to negotiate with speaker boehner and the house leadership, it continues to focus on one issue and that is how much are we going to raise taxes on small businesses which is, as we said before, a terrible idea
:30. in newtown, connecticut, was there a moment of silence. the ringing of the bells. [ bells ] >> church bells rang out in honor of those killed a week ago when a gunman burst into sandy hook elementary school. 20 children and six adults died at the school. the gunman also killed his mother and himself. governors in at least 29 states called for a moment of silence in honor of the victims. now the white house says president obama took part privately. also in newtown today, three more victims of the massacre are being laid to rest. yesterday funerals were held for three 6-year-olds and two teachers. it is a heartbreaking scene that has played out over and over again this week. the mother of the gunman adam lanza has also been laid to rest. a friend says nancy lanza was buried yesterday at an undisclosed location. >>> the gun control debate intensifying one week after that horror in newtown, connecticut, the killing of innocent children. just moments ago we heard from the national rifle association, executive director wayne lapierre called for putting armed police in every school. he also blamed
latest survey and president obama spoke at an evening vigil in the community of newtown, connecticut, raising the prospect of policy changes to stem gun violence. it is monday, december 17th, 2012 and "squawk box" begins right now. >>> good morning, everyone. welcome to "squawk box" here on cnbc. i'm becky quick along with joe kernen and andrew ross sorkin. let's take a look at our lineup today. first off, bob doll will be giving us his lineup for stocks. that's coming up at 7:00 a.m. eastern time. at 8:00 eastern, a cnbc exclusive. david tepper, one of the world's top performing hedge fund managers will join us to give us some of his wisdom in a kaerc t can't-miss interview. a lot to talk about with him. in the meantime, why don't we get to some of today's top stories. we could see some movement in the fiscal cliff negotiations. house speaker boehner offering to raise the top tax rates on those making over $1 million a year as well as other measures amounting to $1 trillion in new revenue. that's in exchange for an equal amount in spending cuts. the white house has not
familiar, it is the same weapon used in the shootings newtown connecticut. neither obtained their guns illegally. we're trying to figure out how to stop these massacres, one is far too many, and they seem to be a terrifyingly regular occurrence in our country. still, these horrific events shock us so deeply because they remain rare. and because the circumstances are each so specific, it is very difficult to government policy to prevent them. most of the policies we think about wouldn't have worked. the federal private sales loophole often called the gun show loophole should be closed. but there is no evidence the killers bought their guns at gun shows or through the loophole. background checks should be stricter, the guns used in western new york and connecticut were not registered in the names of the shooters. waiting periods make sense for gun buyers and particularly to prevent suicide. they would have had little effect on killers who did not purchase their guns through legitimate channels. the assault weapons rifle ban should never have been prevented to last. the ban was full of lo
in newtown connecticut to avoid such events in the future. like most americans, we were shocked by what happened. like all americans, we've been discussing all of the various options that are available to protect our children. and at this point we would like to share our thinking with you. and for that purpose i'd like to introduce wayne lapierre, our executive vice president. thank you for being with us. at the end of this conference we will not be taking questions but next week we will be available to any of you who are interested in talking about these or other issues of interest to you so contact us at that point. thank you very much. wayne. >> good morning. the national rifle association, 4 million mothers, father's, sons and daughters join the nation in horror, outrage, grief and earnest prayer for the families of newtown, connecticut who have suffered such an incomprehensible loss as a result of this unspeakable crime. out of respect for the families and until the facts are known, the n.r.a. has refrained from comment. while some have tried to exploit tragedy for political gain,
the harps back in the closet. >>> the city of newtown, connecticut, has received so many gifts since the december 14th shooting at sandy hook elementary that a local official has asked people to stop sending items like teddy bears and blankets, because postal workers can't handle the volume. officials say they should donate the items to needy children and families in their own community instead. >>> another sign that people are truly worried about the fiscal cliff. an index that tracking consumer confidence fell more than expected in december, to 65.1. now, that's down from 71.5 reading in november, and well below the estimate of 70. barclay's economist deen mackey tells us, consumers, quote, recognize they face a large, potential drop in income if no agreement on the fiscal cliff is regioned soon. let's hope washington is listening. >>> environmental protection agency administrator lisa jackson has announced that she will step down from her post after the president's state of the union address in february. in a statement, jackson says she's leaving the epa, quote, confident the ship
on msnbc, it's the first time since the newtown mass murder that the nra has spoken out in a speech that brought out the protesters. >> see there? several protesters interrupting. the nra did not focus on regulating semiautomatic weapons in this address, an address i think can only be described as combative. wayne la pierre attacked the press, the game and movie industry, and unnamed politicians for basically getting this story wrong, and he issued a range of criticisms. he staked out his organization's solution to this problem. ultimately as more guns. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. i call on congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. >> there you have it. the nra called on congress to fund armed guards at every school in the nation and propose that a former prosecutor lead an nra effort for that program. look, this was not a press conference because will pierre refused to take questions from the assembled reporters. he was interrupted twice b
that have solved newtown? it would have made that teacher the first target. you had armed people in columbine and virginia tech, and it still happened. it's the most nonsensue cal distraction. >> aim a virginia tech graduate. we had armed guards and our own police force, and it still didn't stop it. >> conventional wisdom says you shouldn't have guns in your home with young children. here we talk about tons of young children in schools. bring more guns into these institutions. >> it's crazy. >> it defies logic. >> the austin american statesman, the man credited for stopping the university of texas sniper shootings has passed away. in 1966 charles whitman killed 14 people and wounded 32 more on ut's campus before he was stopped by police officer houston mccoy. mccoy passed away yesterday at the age of 72. in an interview with the paper, mccoy said he does not want what he did that day to define him. i remember that day as vividly as if it were last week. i mean, there's something truly sad about our culture that we have these tombstones of memory in our mind so horrific. we have n
ownership in our area was important in the aftermath of the newtown shootings. >>> starbucks, our very own starbucks, is urging washington to come together. this ad running in today's "washington post" and tomorrow's "new york times" highlights starbucks' new initiative, calling on elected officials to unite on the solution to the fiscal cliff. employees in the washington area starbucks will write the message on customers' cups, urging leadership from congress. aol is also joining the effort by sharing the come together message across its network of hyperlocal websites called patch. you know, this is really a terrific thing. it's a lot of extra work for the employees in all the starbucks, but it's a terrific thing just to remind people -- not that they need reminding -- that we are represented by incompetence in washington. >> it's true. it's very howard schultz, the ceo, who has used his platform of one of the largest companies in the world to push a message or do what's good for the greater good. a couple years ago during the jobs crisis, if you remember, he did a program where you could
. >> reporter: the city moved up its annual gun buyback program after the school massacre in newtown. many waiting in the long lines say the tragedy is what spurred them to act. >> because of the recent news, and all that, we decided to bring in some old guns and drop them off. >> reporter: the line stretched around the block at both locations in van nuys and exposition park. as residents voluntarily surrendered weapons of all shapes and sizes, like this ar-15, similar to the one used in newtown. >> they are exactly the kind of guns that fall into the hands of untrained people who are not their owners and are used for deadly purpose. they are exactly the kind of guns that we want off the street. >> reporter: since the program began in 2009, the lapd collected 8,000 weapons. citizens voluntarily surrender their firearms, no questions asked, no i.d.s needed. in exchange, they get a ralph's gift card. $200 for assault weapons. $100 for other firearms. >> i don't need it anymore. i'm too old already. i'm 85 years old. i don't need that. >> reporter: while critics call it a failure saying it gi
hearts and prayers --all of our hearts and prayers are with the families in newtown, connecticut, grieving the loss of their children and loved ones. we remain committed to try to minimize the impact on hard-working families and small businesses in this country as far as tax increases are concerned. we look to find the answer on the spending issue here in washington. the president has not come to or he needs to be in order for us to push through a bill that begins to address the problem. we are now discussing an alternative plan. thank you. >> we have been trying to make sure we didn't go off this fiscal cliff. at the same time, put america on a different path. the speaker felt maybe he was negotiating with himself after plan after plan and the president stayed silent. we heard nothing but silence. today we have to go to plan b. we want to make sure we do not call off the cliff and that we keep an economy where jobs can be created. we have to remember where we are in the situation. we are two months into a new fiscal year. we are $292 billion in debt. revenues are up by 10%, $30
to satisfactory. it is a long step of healing for the people in newtown, connecticut. all of the flowers and letters and photoin new ton will be soil and blocks to be used in a foundation of a future memorial. it was senator daniel inouyhe's last wish. for colleen handbusa to be. >> i made the appointment for the state of schatz is flying to washington with president obama he is expected to be sworn in later. those are the headlines for you. >> clayton: we'll talk the scal cliff. today is the twenth. a few days left for congress and the president to get their act together. the president took a red eye flight back from hawaii. why did congress and the president go on raication at all. >> yeah, we all go to work. >> there is nothing on the table . kelley. >> a lot of people feel they are left in the lurch by the president and congress. and they didn't get the job done . here's what we are facing. we are teetering on the edge of the fiscal cliff. there are many members in congress who disaagree raising of tax. the president had gone up to $400,000 when house speaker boehner would raise the
in the entire state of arizona. what kind of personal reaction did you have to newtown that spurred the action that you are now taking especially with having the past experience. >> i think that newtown overwhelmingly upseting to everybody that saw it. it is the most terrible thing imaginable and we can't do nothing in response. we shouldn't do something that causes more trouble than it cures . we can't do nothing. the best way and the middle way and the way to help solve the problem without creating new problems is train one person in the school and hoe's highly train that person could have a gun locked up and available for use to stop somebody who is doing bad things. >> kelly: tom horne in utah and kansas you can carry a weapon on the school if you have a permit. thank you tom horne, good day to you, sir . we'll follow that story. pushing parents . this girl got a restraining order against mom and dad because they wouldn't leave her alone at school . the epa chief resigned and the reason may be a cover up. stewart varney will weigh in and happy birthday to my good friend. we don't get to se
the massacre in newtown remains top of mind for many of our readers. in the past week conversation on our opinion pages and website has been focus order gun control. readers are understandably interested to know about guns in their neighborhoods. we obtained the names and addresses of westchester and rock land residents that are licensed to own handguns through routine freedom of information law public records request. here now is david, huffington post publisher blogger and lenny mccalter, contributor for the chicago defender. good to have you here. lenny, nothing illegal here, right? how do you balance the right to publish, freedom of speech, versus outing a lot of people with guns who don't want everybody to know necessarily that they have guns? >> because the constitution also says that you are innocent until proven guilty. as well as the right to bear arms with the second amendment. therefore, i think that we ought to take a step back and i think this is an overreaction. generally speaking, we cannot assume had a just because you own a gun that you are capable or you have potential t
following the newtown shooting. handguns are good for $100 grocery gift cards. even those turning guns in don't think it will change much. >> they think might is right. that's just how it's always been. something i don't think you can unlearn in a short time. >> l.a. police say they have taken back more than 8,000 weapons over the last three years. critics say most of the weapons turned in are either old or broken and wouldn't be used in a crime anyway. >>> president obama will spend the night aboard air force 1, making a red eye trip to washington. with the fiscal cliff deadline less than a week away. what it all means for your paycheck. >> reporter: as the president wrapped up his vacation, federal workers trickled back into the nation's capitol. but the only people who can avert the fiscal cliff, members of the house and senate, have not returned. in just six days, a 2% payroll tax is set to expire, along with the bush-era tax cuts, shrinking the average person's paycheck in 2013 by about $1500. long-term unemployment benefits for about two million jobless americans are also set to
of the horrific shooting in newtown, connecticut, on friday, it was impossible for me not to react not just as a senator, but as a parent, as a father. and as my wife and i spent the weekend reflecting on the heartbreaks loss of 20 innocent children and 6 of their teachers and faculty, as we talked to our own three young children about what had happened, we thought about the grief, the anguish. a whole range of different parents deeply touched by this tragic incident. the first, of course, are the parents who lost their precious, innocent children. their six- and seven-year olds in the massacre at sandy hook elementary school last friday. parents like joel and joann baker who lost their precocious outgoing red-haired daughter charlotte just six years old. joann recently bought charlotte a holiday dress in her favorite color -- pink -- and a pair of white boots. charlotte begged and begged to wear her new outfit early and on friday, december 14, the last day of charlotte's young life, her mother joann agreed. or parents like steve and rebecca kowalski, who lost their son chase. two days befo
for the media in covering a story like newtown. juan, as you know well know, talking about it is tough for any parent? >> it's one of the great difficulties. you want to be responsible because you are aware that fox news watch exists. you act in a way that is rude and, get it first, get that interview first. be most aggressive in covering a story. you risk a deeper sense to the public and you will be held accountable. you will notice here that the rules with regard to interviewing children, rules o pursuing families of victims really were held in check in this instance. i think there is a new set of rules with regard to media behavior. >> jon: there were a lot of mistakes made in early coverage and lots of this has to do with the social media atmosphere in which everybody's facebook pages. >> and feeling that reporters think they are in competition with twitter. they got his age wrong, identity wrong, they named his brother. whether the mother worked at the school, they got that wrong. this was not a good occasion for the press. to me it symbolized what i was talking about the church services
morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. >>> welcome back. since the newtown, connecticut school attack, there's been plenty of talk about arming teachers and two-thirds of americans believe arming at least one official would be somewhat effective against attacks. >> cecilia vega reports. >> reporter: the gun is fake. but these utah teachers fear the threats facing their classrooms is very real. 200 of those teachers became students. packing a conference room on their holiday break to learn how to carry a concealed weapon on the job, and how to protect their schools from an armed intruder. >> the safety is the biggest part and to be able to use them appropriately is really high priority for me. >> reporter: utah is one of few states where public schools allow guns on campus. but in the wake of the shooting at sandy hook, the push is on to add more states to that list. arizona's attorney general wants every school principal or the designee armed. in ohio, applications for one shooting course for teachers are up 20%. arming teachers is a lot like arming airline pilots. simply knowing that someon
. unfortunately, due to the tragic shooting of 0 students and six teachers in newtown, connecticut this bill is timely. we should pass the bill today so the president can sign it into law. while we must take steps to investigate such ince depts, it's even more critical to prevent them occurring in the first place prosm posals to -- proposals to do that include gun safety and legislation like the youth promise act to provide comprehensive juvenile justice initialtives or the juvenile justice block grant or the campus safety act, all pending, as well as increased funding for mental health services and school counselors. we simply must do all we can to protect our citizens in these proposal -- and these proposals must be enacted as soon as possible. with respect to h.r. 2076, the bill reports today, i want to commend the gentleman from south carolina, mr. gowdy, for his leadership in this bill and urge my colleagues to support the senate amendment to h.r. 2076 and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from south carolina. mr. gowd

couple of days for america. we're so deeply saddened to hear the news from newtown, connecticut, on friday. as a parent, nothing in life is more important than the protection of our children. the death of a child, there is no recovery from. my heart goes out to all the families who lost loved ones in this unspeakable tragedy. last night, we learned the death of -- learned of the death of our colleague, senator inouye. i want to mention today that just this past sunday, over the weekend, grief struck the capital city of kansas in my home state. officer jeff athalate fatally shot while on duty, investigating drug activity occurring inside a vehicle outside a neighborhood grocery store. as they approached the vehicle and orbded the okay -- ordered the occupants to get out the gunmen took the lives of both officers. when we lose someone in a community in kansas, it's not just a name. it's somebody we go to church with. it's somebody we know and care about. these individuals are that to their friends and family in topeka and across our state. david had been part of the topeka police
. this is from the journal news, the newspaper. the massacre in newtown, connecticut remains top of mind for many of our readers. our readers are understandably interested to know about guns in their neighborhood. we possibilitied the names and addresses of residents who are licensed to own hand guns through routine freedom of information law public records request. michael, that makes -- does that implicitly assume that anybody who owns a gun is going to go off on some massacre like what we saw up in connecticut? >> well, yes. this list exposes an inherent bias among the publishers and editors of this newspaper that somehow own ago hand gun is socially unacceptable. using the tactics of the extreme left to try to embarrass or bully or to try to convince these people that whatever they're doing that's inconsistent with the beliefs of the publisher is somehow unacceptable. we certainly want to insure that there is a right of all constitutional rights to be able to possess hand guns, as well as be able to speak about whatever you want to publish whatever you want. in this case, you have to preserve
. >> so he wears this ammunition belt a few short days after what happened at newtown elementary school and i mean, the thought process that must go through your head and go on campus and not alert security about it, but wearing a full ammunition belt, his mom shall it was for fun, they were fake, it wasn't for real. >> dave: ha, ha, real funny. >> clayton: how does anyone know that. >> juliet: the friends say the belt is a fashion statement. he constantly wears it, it's a punk thing. >> dave: that's cool. >> juliet: a stylish thing. and we had a counselor on and a psychotherapist. >> you could get away with that 20, 30 years ago, but particularly the sensitive nation of everything going on in our nation after the connecticut shooting three days after that, you've got to have a better common sense, a belt bullets, no justification, i look at this as a parental thing. as a society we've somehow kept 18 to 24-year-old men and women, like a perennial type warp of adolescence and time for us as parents to start holding our kids accountable at a young age into adolescence and young adult hoo
package. given everything a country has been through, from a superstar and sandy to the tragedy in newtown, the last thing americans need is for politicians to refuse to compromise, putting the brakes on economic growth and job creation. i urge my colleagues to end the political charade. let's get back to the serious task of negotiating a balanced deficit-reduction plan. let's do it now, today, we can do it. >> the gentleman from wisconsin. >> mr. speaker, i want to add my congratulations to the gentlewoman from new york and become the ranking member of the appropriations committee. she has our respect and congratulations. i would like to yield one minute to the distinguished majority leader. >> i thank the gentleman from wisconsin, chairman of the budget committee. mr. speaker, i rise today to urge support for the measures before us to replace the sequester and reduce the deficit and extend permanent tax relief to the middle-class and hundreds of thousands of small business people. for the past weeks and months, as people have been looking for jobs and budgeting for their expenses, we hav
talk this morning has been on newtown and potential changes to a gun laws. before we move into the fiscal issues, what is your take on the current mood in the country and the potential mood in congress on changing the gun laws? guest: peter, it's a tragic situation. i have a for our children 17 and under, including a 6-year-old -- four children. so it's pretty close to home. the mood i see in congress, i hope that we don't move in haste and do things we might regret. i hope we let folks mourn and we will look at that. i think it's an individual problem. we have mental illness issues tied into this that are separate, but do impact the situation, obviously. most of my constituents, i don't think i have had anyone to call into my office to say that we should get changes in federal gun laws. host: what is your rating? guest: i have a 100% rating. and i'm a gun owner. i have an 11-year-old and 6- year-old son. we went hunting during pheasant season. it's important that parents train their children in their use and to respect and understand the use of guns if you are going to ha
that. host: a poll was done on top stories. presidential election, followed by what happened in newtown, then the attack in libya down the list. guest: it is in the top 10 but it has never become the focus. ironically, for those who think it is a scandal -- i remember some people said the watergate of our time. mitt romney had every opportunity and the debates to make hay with this issue and did not do it. host: mike, good morning. caller: good morning. mr. williams, merry christmas. after obama campaign in to one 2008 to reduce the deficit and then double it, do you think the american electorate was cognizant of the fact that obama doubled in it instead of cutting it in half? why don't the american people care about the debt of the united states of america? guest: i do think they care about it. the economy is the number-one issue. guess what? then it comes down to things like jobs. then you come to the debt. it is not that americans are out of touch with the idea that the government is spending more money than we are taking in. there is lots of concern about whether or not the chinese
" sunday night at 8:00. >> president obama talks about friday's shooting at an elementary school in newtown, connecticut. >> on friday, we learn more than two dozen people were killed when a gunman opened fire at an elementary school. most who died were elementary children with their lives ahead of them. among the fallen were also teachers, men and women who devoted their lives helping children fulfill their dreams. our hearts are broken today. we grieve for the families of those we lost. we keep in our prayers those who survived. they know their child's innocence has been torn away far too early. as a nation, we have endured far too many of these tragedies the past few years. an elementary school in newtown, a shopping mall again from oregon, a movie theater of in colorado, countless streetcorners and places like chicago and philadelphia. any of these neighborhoods could be our own. we have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this from happening. regardless of politics. this weekend, michele and i are doing what i know every parent is doing, holding o
is the ticker on this of course, troubles surrounding the newtown, connecticut, shooting a lot of sellers on that stock during that period of time, today, issuing another $15 billion, expand its buy back program which it just announced with its fiscal second quarter results, announced 20 million share -- $20 million worth of buy backs and expand that to 15. nice gain on the shares. >> >> a big winner for the year. look at that chart. >> all handgunmakers, talking about this before, how ironic you can the obama administration was seen strict irbefore the elections and hand brought forward the dematte manned that might have been in the future, people wanted to bite hand guns. >> always the case. any time the debate over gun control flares up. >> does the framework of the "wall street journal" piece tell us anything new about best buy, sears? >> for sears, we have seen them cut costs, cut costs, sears and the kmart stores. it seems that this year the reckoning, the kmart operation, people have lost track of that if you send people inside kmart today, i think you basically find a relatively h
. and somewhere we seem to go on astray. we go astray now from what we learn in newtown, connecticut. we go astray when we see how some of us treat each other in this chamber. the old adage is not just to go along to get along. you get along a lot better if you get along. or to put it in the old country boy wisdom, you can attract a lot more flies with honey than you can with vinegar. that's the life that our colleague led. some people call it a throwback to the gentlemanly days of the united states senate, a throwback when courtliness and deference -- i hope it's not a throwback. i hope we're not throwing back anything. i hope we will remember the life of danny inouye. he -- he -- he felt this so strongly that when he was a chairman of committee, he didn't refer to the ranking republican as the ranking member. he called them the vice chairm chairman. now, of course, that was uniquely senator inouye but it also was practical. because he could get more done if he's sitting there as chairman and his vice chairman is sitting right next to him. and so we have a lot to learn in these emotional times of
